Local author, illustrator and graphic designer Robert Pizzo will read from his new children's book, "The Amazing Animal Alphabet of Twenty-Six Tongue Twisters," at the Fairfield University Bookstore on Saturday, Sept. 14. Children can also make a craft and have a snack. Pizzo has assembled an assortment of sticky syllables into 26 tiny, tongue-twisting tales, one for every letter of the alphabet. Each stars colorfully drawn critters, from the Abstract Artist Alligator to the Zeppole-Eating Zebra.
The story time will start at 4 p.m. in the children's area of the bookstore, 1499 Post Road.
